How to Find the Right Moving Company

Joan Cox shares some valuable information for buyers and sellers alike.  In fact, anyone who is planning a move should do some investigating ahead of time.  One person pointed out that a mover from a well known company scoped out her house a few days before the move before everything was completely packed. He picked the best stuff for himself and left it off the inventory sheets. We all need to be aware and do our investigation before moving.  Each state has a public transporation department and you can always check your locall BBB for complaints before making a final decision.

Moving Day

 

 

Part of buying or selling a home involves moving, and if you are thinking of hiring a moving company, there are things you should check into prior to signing on the dotted line if you plan to get from House A to House B with all of your belongings!

  • Check HERE to see if the company has been blacklisted.
  • Check HERE to see if your moving company is Certified.
  • Check the BBB to see if they have a rating, or if there have been complaints filed against the company.    There are a few with A+ ratings.
  • Legitimate movers include a Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC) registration number in their advertising and web site.
  • If the moving company is crossing State lines, they have to register with the Federal Motor Carriers Association, and need a USDOT number.    You can check this at   -                     http://www.safer.fmcsa.dot.gov/CompanySnapshot.aspx           

 

Now that you feel good about the validity of the moving company, be sure to get a solid estimate in writing.   This will prevent extra charges surprises on the day of the move.   Read and understand the contract completely before you sign it.

Place the approximate value on your goods.   Most companies have several valuation options to cover your belongings.

Moving can be very stressful, take the stress out while organizing this move, and due your due diligence before it is too late!

Nice selection for a reblog, Sheri. I think I hear people complain about their movers more than just about anything else when it comes to buying or selling a home.

Sheri, Joan did a great job on this post. Not all moving companies are created equal. This is something we get asked for recommendations on more than anything else. Very important to research before selecting a company.
